Rep. Deutch Co-Introduces Humane Cosmetics Act
Congressman Ted Deutch (FL-22) has joined Congresswoman Martha McSally (AZ-2) and 17 other Members of Congress in introducing the bipartisan Humane Cosmetics Act.
This legislation would eliminate cosmetic testing on animals within one year, and it would ban the sale of cosmetics that were developed using animal testing within three years. Many European countries have already adopted similar laws against cosmetic testing on animals. Alternative methods would not only be more humane, but could prove to be more reliable.
Congressman Deutch is a member of the Congressional Animal Protection Caucus and earned a 100+ score from the Humane Society of the United States for his 2016 voting record, the only Member of Congress from Florida to receive this top score.
